School council to meet on May 31 in the library – Erskine Enquirer

Congratulations to all our Erskine and area grads who are graduating from Wm. E. Hay this coming weekend.

The Hank Boer Fun Run marathon went well last week. The weather was a little wet, which actually made it nice so the students participating didn’t get over heated. Hank Boer came down from Edmonton to help participate in the fundraiser. All proceeds went to the Edmonton Stollery hospital for sick children.

Tomorrow May 26 is hot lunch day.

Stettler Public Library program is back in Erskine on Friday right after school.

‘Tis the season for field trips: May 30, ECS and Grade One go to Red Deer to learn skills at Safety City and then on to Collicutt for fun swimming. Also on Monday Grades 3 and 4 go to Markerville for their field trip.

Erskine School is in the middle doing Provincial Achievement Tests in May and June.

Parents write on your calendar to attend School Council on May 31 at 7 pm in the Library. This will probably be the last School Council for this school calendar year.

Birthday wishes go out to Andrew Nibourg May 25 and Candace Rider May 29.

Happy Anniversary to Chris and Patti Standage May 25.
